From June 23 through July 15, H.D. Buttercup will be hosting their Half Yearly Sale, offering 20-70% off their entire store. The SoMa showroom's frequent turnover of inventory evokes the freshness of a farmers market, with new styles, designs, and collections arriving weekly—sometimes even daily—luring loyal customers back again and again.
The Bay Area's gin fanatics were treated to an early holiday gift when Hendrick's Gin partnered with 7x7 to present the San Francisco edition of their Enchanted Forest of Curiosities. A multi-level raw space in SoMa was magically transformed into one of the most intriguing culturescapes of the season, captivating the city's impassioned gin-erati.
Heavens to Betsy! We posted an invitation to a very very special event with our friends at Hendrick's Gin happening this Thursday, and the response was so... shall we say, healthy... that we simply HAD to offer another night of fun to our dear, dedicated, debauched de-lovelies (yes, we mean you!)
ALERT: THIS EVENT IS AT CAPACITY, WE HAVE BEEN INFORMED THE GUEST LIST IS CLOSED.

Through a storm of Memorial Day shoppers, a swift flash or orange caught my eye. There was Marvin Brooks, a Prada Women's RTW specialist at Neiman Marcus, decked out in Prada, (naturally), and looking oh-so fab.
What he's wearing: Tie-dyed dress shirt, striped square-end tie, dark denim jeans, and chunky blue-green-brown oxford-espadrilles, all from Prada. Vivienne Westwood ring purchased in the London VW store, Prada glasses from Glitter Optics, navy belt from Zara.
San Francisco's Branch is finding a new place to perch. The sustainable design-focused online retailer is packing up its South Van Ness warehouse and easing into a shiny new space South of Market. While details on the new headquarters are limited so far, talk of a showroom and event space planned inside have got our interest piqued.
A modern, undulating ride of LEED-certified design, Bar Agricole might be the most stunning tavern to ever touch down in San Francisco. The fact that the high-concept, farmcentric tavern is located on one of the most scrappy blocks of the city makes it all the more fascinating. We talked to Thad Vogler, the mad genius behind it all. Just don't call him a mixologist.
With an appealingly ramshackle, if cultivated, sense of funk, there's something very NYC LES about Citizen's Band, the latest SF SoMa restaurant to enter the scene. If ironic trucker hats were still en vogue, this would be the place to wear them.
Americana is the theme: vintage postcards cover the walls; old, metal tractor seats made into stools (something bare legs can't recommend) are parked at a counter overlooking an open kitchen. The whole space opens up to Pinkie's Bakery which opens up to Icon, a small dance club. There's a progressive dinner in here somewhere.
Stop what you're doing and take a minute to think about all of your favorite San Francisco landmarks. Sure, City Hall and the Golden Gate Bridge may top the list but don't leave out the wacky building on the corner of Sixth and sketchy known as Defenstration. Love it or hate it, we all know the blighted Hugo Hotel turned public art installation on the corner of Sixth and Howard and our city just wouldn't feel the same without it. But the furniture-clad building won't stay frozen in time without a little TLC. And that's where you come in.
